Tomlin Middle School’s auditorium was transformed into a scene straight out of Alice in Wonderland Saturday night for the Little Miss Plant City contest.
The 28 contestants all showed off their unique personality — some even donned Cheshire Cat and Alice outfits — as they competed to be dubbed a part of the LMPC court. Demi Chyann Atkinson even showed off her rooster crowing skills by letting out a bellowing crow for the crowd. Once the judges narrowed it down to a top 10 the young girls were asked if they could invent anything to make the world a better place, what would they create?
Answers ranged from a solution to stopping bullying to finding a cure for cancer. After much deliberation the judges announced the 2019 LMPC Queen and Court.
